's about tax reform. that's about a balance between growth-oriented policies and appropriate spending cuts. >> joe? >> you know, there are things, jon meacham, that even conservatives, small-government conservatives, can support that, again, take care of these things. we can look at medicare. we can look at medicaid. but we don't have to slash spending on pell grants. and when you look at the budget our infrastructure, you look at the budget, right now discretionary dmomestic spending -- i don't want to bore people, but that's an area that makes up those sort of investments that grow the economy. that only takes up about 10 to 12% of our budget now. defense, entitlements and servicing the national debt take up the vast majority of the other 80%, 85%. so we can invest and still be fiscally prudent and take care of our long-term obligations now. >> you know, facts are stubborn things. when we talk about big-spending government, what we're really talking about is not on poor people, not on students, not on -- we're talking about us. we're all what jonathan roush called, we're in the middle of
